New Microsoft Lumia phones reduced again

All I ever seem to write about these days are price reductions to Microsoft products.  I’m not complaining mind; I can’t wait to get my hands on one of the new phones, it just leaves me wondering why the cost keeps dropping given that nothing has actually

Lumia 950XL now to include a free Continuum Display Dock

Last week we posted a story about how the new flagship Microsoft phones had been reduced in price even before their release.  If that wasn’t enough to tempt you, Microsoft are now offering a free Display Dock to anyone purchasing a Lumia 950XL through its website before

An update on Windows 10 Mobile device availability

I confess I’m still slightly uncertain how we’re supposed to refer to this – Windows Mobile 10 sounds like the WM6 of old; Windows Phone 10 is plainly no longer used; and Windows 10 Mobile sounds daft when abbreviated to W10M.  Anyway, digression aside, as we get

Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950XL already reduced

They’re not even out yet and already the flagship Lumia handsets have been reduced in price. Crisis!! Actually, that comes across as a little unfair, particularly coming from someone chomping at the bit to get their hands on one of these shiny new phones.  The 950 had

Windows 10 Mobile updates to be pushed out from Microsoft directly

One of the great differences between Apple on the one hand, and Google and Microsoft on the other, is that Apple controls all aspects of its hardware and software. This means it pushes out OS updates quickly and without having to wait for approval from carriers and manufacturers.

Microsoft launch the all-new Band

If you watched the event you’ll know about it already, but Microsoft yesterday announced the Microsoft Band 2. It will, provided you don’t pig out on the doughnuts, help you “Live healthier and achieve more”. OK. Tech specs. GO! Band Material – Thermal plastic elastomer silicone vulcanate

Is Google about to announce a new partnership with Microsoft?

For Windows users today looks to be an exciting day. Starting at 1500 GMT Microsoft will take the wraps off its latest hardware and software developments. Much is already known about the devices themselves (phones, tablets, and wearables) but I’ve got a nagging sense that there’s still

Rumoured Lumia 550 makes and appearance on the web

So, we already know that Microsoft will shortly be launching their new Lumia 950 and 950XL but now, according to serial tipster @evleaks, a lower-end device might be joining the line-up. This, the Lumia 550, looks to be heading to the October 6th event too. It’ll do

IFA – Acer launches the first premium Windows Phone 10 handset

At IFA last week, Acer launched a variety of devices, some of which we’ve already covered. For Windows Phone aficionados, there was some exciting news amidst an otherwise very underwhelming show.

HTC to lay off over 2,000 staff

Just a couple of days ago we showed that HTC was essentially worthless. Financially, at least. Today they’ve announced that 15% of their staff are to go in order to reduce operating expediture by 35%. The company states that they need to be “leaner and more agile”
